Mario García Torres: Je ne sais si c'en est la cause, What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger, and Some Reference Materials / MATRIX 227

February 22–May 17, 2009

By investigating and reconstructing ephemeral histories of conceptual art, Mario García Torres considers the functions of time and distance in our constructions of the past. The works in this exhibition excavate two such histories: Martin Kippenberger's attempt to establish a modern art museum on a Greek island, and Daniel Buren's murals at a now-derelict resort hotel.
